Yep, I did the worst thing I could to my big, beautiful 2015 Silverado 3500HD—I put a half tank of unleaded in the fuel tank. I got about half a mile down the road, and she died, so I had her towed to a repair shop. They drained the tank, replaced the fuel filter, and put in less than a half a tank of diesel. They called and said the truck was driven with no issues. I went to pick it up, and it wouldn’t start. The tech came out and, after a lot of cranking, got it started. Less than a block away, it felt like I put on the brake, but I didn’t. That cleared after a few seconds, and I got up to about 55 mph. After a mile, it lost power again. This time the Engine Power Reduced warning came up on the display, then a Check Engine light, then a Fuel Filter Requires Replacement warning. I limped it home and parked. Is this a normal occurrence after the bonehead move? Or is there something seriously wrong?
